GeoIgnite Talk On YouTube: The National Canadian Elevation Data Strategy Update from NRCan

Natural Resources Canada is hard at work on the National Elevation Data Strategy, which aims to provide Canadians with an accurate three-dimensional representation of the country, in support of government priorities. This is Canada’s DEM. High quality 3D data is key in order to serve Canadians and support federal priorities such as flood mapping, forestry, climate change, agriculture, infrastructure planning, and mining.  In this video from Day One of GeoIgnite 2021, David Bélanger discusses the project.
